Job description

You're passionate about fighting climate change and injustice, but you can see that traditional campaigning isn't delivering the scale of transformation required.  You have strong policy and research skills, and you want to apply them as part of an innovative team that's breaking new ground.  We've got the role for you.

The Advocacy Team at Tearfund has a dream in which we tackle the three defining issues of our time - ending extreme poverty, living within the earth's limits and tackling inequality.  We walk alongside grassroots movements around the globe, inspiring and equipping them to drive change, and joining them up with our research, media and campaigning work.  We're looking for an enthusiastic senior member of staff to join our policy and research team. 

You'll be an excellent team player, good at working flexibly and in partnership with others, leading new and expanding areas of work. We're specifically looking for strong policy experience, ideally in environmental sustainability, economics or a similar discipline.

You'll be part of a small policy and research team, which sits within the advocacy team. 

All applicants must be committed to Tearfund's Christian beliefs.

The recruitment process will include specific checks related to safeguarding issues. In addition, personal identification information will be submitted against a Watchlist database to check against criminal convictions as a counter-terror measure.
